Every Patient Counts
Our patients are at the core of who we are.
After testing positive for COVID-19, Mr. Clark spent over a month in the ICU receiving ECMO to save his life. As Mr. Clark improved, he transitioned to a Resolute-managed rehabilitation unit in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Upon admission, Mr. Clark required moderate to maximum assistance for his mobility and activities of daily living. He needed a tracheostomy tube to support his breathing, couldn’t eat food by mouth, and required a feeding tube for his nutrition. Over the next three weeks, Mr. Clark embraced his challenging treatment plan. He worked with nurses, rehabilitation, and respiratory therapists to rebuild his life. Upon discharge to his home, Mr. Clark was walking with a rolling walker for 25 feet and required set-up assistance for self-care activities. He was eating a regular diet and was weaned from the tracheostomy tube. After several months at home with his family, Mr. Clark returned to Resolute to share his appreciation. He is now fully independent!
After a car accident, Mr. Frank was rushed to the emergency room. He fractured his ribs and was placed on a ventilator after his lungs collapsed. When Mr. Frank transitioned to a Resolute-managed rehabilitation unit in Clear Lake, Texas, he remained on the ventilator, required total assistance for all his mobility, and received nutrients from a feeding tube. As part of Mr. Frank’s individualized treatment plan, Mr. Frank worked hard with the hospital’s respiratory therapists and was weaned from the ventilator! As Mr. Frank’s lungs improved, his endurance grew. With a helping hand from our Resolute team, he learned to walk for over 50 feet with a rolling walker! He continued this progress with our rehabilitation team, completed all self-care activities independently, and returned to a regular diet! We wish Mr. Frank the best as he continues his journey in inpatient rehabilitation!
After falling off a ladder, Mr. Woodruff was rushed to the emergency room and diagnosed with a brain hemorrhage. When he transitioned to a Resolute-managed rehabilitation unit in Bossier City, Louisiana, for continued care, Mr. Woodruff required a tracheostomy tube to support his breathing and a feeding tube for nutrition. He couldn’t move or complete self-care activities without assistance. In the face of any challenge, Mr. Woodruff worked to rebuild his life. As the Resolute team rebuilt Mr. Woodruff’s strength, the hospital’s respiratory therapists weaned Mr. Woodruff from the tracheostomy tube and provided him with the tools needed to breathe independently again! Alongside this progress, Mr. Woodruff learned to walk with a rolling walker with minimal assistance from our rehabilitation team for up to 150 feet. His feeding tube was removed, and he could perform self-care activities with support. Mr. Woodruff was discharged to inpatient rehabilitation to continue his recovery!
